I thought I’d log a few stories that pop up during this election campaign, that just seem ridiculous to me. These types of stories pop up all the time. There’s maybe a day of massively overhyped controversy, and then it’s never hear of again. I think this first story definitely fits the bill. It’s Labour’s pink van.
Here’s the van. Shocking isn’t it? This story has been all over the news today, and Channel 4 News managed to milk about 10 minutes out of it. I don’t entirely know what it’s all about, but here’s the jist. Is the van patronising? Is it sexist? I don’t know, but is this really news?
